Designed for engineering workstations, network servers, mainframes, supercomputers, and more, the 8TB Enterprise Capacity 7200 rpm SAS III 3.5" Internal HDD with 512e format from Seagate provides high performance and high capacity data storage using its Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) interface. It is designed for 24/7 use and meets next-generation computing demands for performance, scalability, flexibility, and high-density storage requirements.
Seagate's 8TB Enterprise 3.5" drive offers a storage capacity of up to 8TB, a 512e format, and operates using a SAS III 12 Gb/s interface, a 256MB cache, and a rotational speed of 7200 rpm, all of which help to ensure uninterrupted data transfers with a sustained data transfer rate of up to 249 MB/s. This drive also features high levels of reliability, with a workload limit of 550TB per year, 1 in 1015 non-recoverable read errors, a 2 million hour MTBF, 8760 power-on hours per year, and an annualized failure rate (AFR) of 0.44%.
This drive is further stabilized using an automatic shipping lock that helps prevent potential damage to the heads and discs that results from movement during shipping and handling. The shipping lock disengages and the head load process begins when power is applied to the drive. While in use, built-in rotational vibration tolerance helps to ensure consistent performance, even in dense multi-drive systems.
